Why does THE CHALLENGE exist?

Every day, an avalanche of advice from health and fitness mavens floods our lives, each touting routines guaranteed to revolutionize our wellbeing. Amid this barrage of "next big things," the question arises:
Which habits truly deliver substantial returns on our health, fitness, and overall wellness?

10.000 steps per day
keto diet
daily gratitude
ice dipping
intermittent fasting
resistance training
morning sun exposure
coffee detox
vegan diet
no alcohol
HRV training
calorie restriction
cold showers
proper hydration
no sugar
daily writing
sleep gadgets
exercise snacking

With our time being a finite resource, it's crucial to prioritize habits that offer the most significant benefits.
Thus, The Challenge was born - a unique platform designed to methodically test these routines within a consistent timeframe and group, allowing us to gauge and compare their real impact.
